Michael McMillan

Artists

Born in the UK of Caribbean migrant parents, artist and writer Michael McMillan uses mixed media as part of a creative collaborative process that brings in other artists and local people for performances and exhibitions.

In 2015 McMillan was commissioned by Peckham Platform for Doing Nothing is Not an Option, an exhibition commemorating the 20th anniversary of the execution of the Nigerian writer and activist Ken Saro-Wiwa. Saro-Wito and eight other colleagues were executed in 1995 in Nigeria for crimes they did not commit as they campaigned against Shell’s exploitation and environmental destruction of the Ogoni land.

Doing Nothing is Not an Option was a site-responsive mixed-media installation exploring the relationship between local people in Peckham and the memory of Saro-Wiwa. It took place inside the gallery and outside in Peckham Square and included a number of public events.

His work was also part of the 2016 Peckham Platform Retrospective exhibition, a timeline of all 20 artists commissions realised by Peckham Platform between 2010 – 2016.
